Chris Brown and Drake’s legal team are striking back in the “No Guidance” fight.
Attorneys for Chris Brown and Drake filed a motion to have the case thrown out calling the lawsuit’s allegations “baseless”. They say the phrase “you got it” is common and can't be covered under copyright laws.
According to the suit the two allegedly ripped off Brandon Cooper and Timothy Valentine by illegally sampling their track “I Love Your Dress.”
Cooper and Valentine allege the beat, lyrics, hook, rhythmic structure, metrical placement and narrative context from their song were copied for “No Guidance.” They seek monetary damages for infringement that include no less than 50 percent of all direct and indirect royalties and revenues generated by the commercial success of “No Guidance.”
Good luck with that.
